Re: Some things that are puzzling me

Possibly hoping for more?
I hope for more to, but I am unconvinced more will materialise.
Though happily for me, everything was left neatly tied up.

Re: Some things that are puzzling me

Not for me. And I think I am not the only one. 

For me a show is over when the creators or the broadcaster tell me it is over. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/wink.png

Re: Some things that are puzzling me

Oh I know...but waiting for 5 years(which I think it would be), feels like over to me!

Re: Some things that are puzzling me

Why five years? Not even Benedict is THAT much in demand.

Re: Some things that are puzzling me

His diary is booked up for the next 3...there are currently no plans for S 5, or even any stand alone episodes.

Re: Some things that are puzzling me

Then you know more than I do. Child in Time and Melrose this year. How to stop time and maybe Strange sequel in 2018. These are the only confirmed or probable projects as far as I know.

I just realised we are getting very off topic here. 😉

Re: Some things that are puzzling me

Apologies: I am basing my comments on:
1. On Facebook a fan girl posted a list of(ok some only speculated) projects and it took Benedict to 3 years of work.
2. On what Mark and Steven said at the talks I attended. Steven said it had been virtually impossible to get everyone together for S 4. They had been supposed to film it when they did TAB. But then Benedict announced he would be doing Dr Strange, so there was no time to film a full series, hence them doing TAB instead.

Re: Some things that are puzzling me

Thank you. But then they should put an end to speculation. I prefer to know when something is definitely over. Maybe this is just me.

As I said, the confirmed projects do not add up to three years. And I think it is also a matter of wanting or not wanting to continue. Getting together the actors for a special should not be impossible, especially since many are only needed for a limited time. I think it is a matter of the team and the BBC wanting more Sherlock or not.

Re: Some things that are puzzling me

All Steven kept saying is that he would never say never: there is no sense that people don't want to do it anymore, they are all simply too busy...he and Mark are working on a new project, which I am dying to hear about.

Re: Some things that are puzzling me

I think Steven - and the others - have always been very open and honest about the future of the series. All of them say the same thing - they love it, they would like to do more, but scheduling is incredibly difficult. It's not only Ben, there is also Martin who is just as busy. And, of course, Moftiss themselves, the crew and the other actors. 

I remember Monthy Pyton said the same for years. Everybody kept nagging them to do a reunion, and they said that scheduling made it impossible. 

So by saying that it might happen, but if so it's a long time in the future, they are being as open and honest as they can, I think.

Re: Some things that are puzzling me

Surely a matter of personal preferences. I just like to know where I stand with a show. Looking at the current Broadchurch reactions on Twitter - tears and gratitude and praise, definite words from the creators. It is just what I would have preferred for Sherlock - either this or at least a promise to do more (without the need for a timeline or date).

Re: Some things that are puzzling me

But they cannot give any such promises at the moment, that's the whole point!
I entirely agree with you that it is annoying we have no definite answer....but unfortunately it is what it is.

Re: Some things that are puzzling me

I'm glad that they're being honest, though.   And also that they have finished the story, rather than leaving us with a cliffhanger.  If they don't get the opportunity to make more, then at least we have an ending.

Re: Some things that are puzzling me

I agree, Liberty. I am quite fine with the ending if we don't get any more, and I am glad they chose to "end" it instead of leaving us with a clilfhanger that may or may not be resolved in an unknown amount of years in the future. THAT would have annoyed me.
